in supporting the pending measure. speaker thomas p. o'neill, other wise known as tip, was first elected to represent the 11th congressional district of massachusetts in 1952 and he continued to serve for 17 terms. during his 34 years in congress, he served as the chair of the select committee on campaign expenditures, majority whip, majority leader, and finally speaker of the house. speaker o'neill holds a special place in my own congressional career because when i was sworn in at the beginning of my first term in congress in 1977, it was also tip's first year as speaker of this body. he held that post for a decade, making him the second longest tenured speaker in the history of the high pressure system. there are a litany of legislative accomplishments that could be described as defining the career of thomas p. o'neill, however his most remarkable guide post was his dedication to federal programs that addressed the needs of the poor, the middle class, the sick, the fallen, and our working men and women across this great country. speaker o'neill is an unabashed supporter of the new deal

meetings after the election of 1960, i think they had each come away quite impressed by the other, that kennedy had been describing eisenhower as kind of slow and doddering and not alert to the new realities of the 1960's. he met an extremely forceful and intelligent president of the united states in dwight eisenhower. i think likewise eisenhower was dismissive of a wealthy politician, a much younger man, a senator whom he had not condescended to meet as president. and he also came away as someone who was extremely well versed. so they began to like each other more. and especially during this crisis i think they had a sense of how lonely it is to occupy that office and how you're getting all kinds of advice, you're getting good advice, you're getting a lot of faulty advice, which kennedy was, including from his joint chiefs. eisenhower knew all about faulty military advice, and he was able to speak with his supreme authority about the dangers as well as the advantages of military advice. so he was a very useful ally to president kennedy. >> were you alive during the cuban missile
